Go to the Interactive C. elegans Cell Atlas http://wormweb.org/celllineage

1) Display the 8-cell stage of the lineage tree (eight terminal cells). 

2) Take a screenshot of this tree, then use a drawing tool to mark founder cells for the following sublineages: AB, E, MS, D, P4, and C. If the founder cell of a sublineage is not present in this tree, please mark its progenitor*

HINT: you may need to open the tree 4 levels deep (e.g. the 16-cell stage) to reason this out.

3) Upload the modified image as evidence.
